Entry Level answer example
"Last month, I recruited a couple of coworkers to help me solve a problem for a client. We were looking at their financials, but something didn't add up right, and I didn't have the analysis background that these two co-workers had. Together we molded our areas of expertise and created a bulletproof financial plan for our client. I enjoyed the collaboration and would do it again in a heartbeat."
Experienced answer example
"I'm a strong collaborator. I am willing to listen to others' opinions, hear their perspective, and work together to build a solution that will work for everyone. I look for opportunities to draw from others' experience and expertise to bring about the best solution for the client and the branch as a whole."
